BLUF: Our CFO is retiring in 8 months. My job title is currently Director of Finance & Operations. We are consolidating positions and I will take on her duties, keep doing my job, and delegate some of her and my stuff out.
Currently, she just does business and no operations. I'm responsible for both and will continue to be when she's gone.
So, when she retires should I push for a job title of CFO or CFO/COO....or COO?

... but no COOs with heavy company-wide finance responsibilities, so I lean towards definitely not 'COO' alone.

Your CEO and board members are likely to weigh in, or at least have opinions -- ask?  They might have their eye on some organizational structure tweak, and you'll likely want to make it easier to realize.
